Browsing with assistive tech | Tetralogical

A fantastic series of short, introductory videos put together by the folks over at Tetralogical. Each one provides an insight into how assistive technologies and alternative browsing methods are actually used, from screenreaders (on both desktop and mobile operating systems) to magnification to voice control.

Even with extensive experience using and testing with some of these tools, I still found several things here impressive and/or interesting:

  • It will never get old hearing a screenreader running at 100% speed; so impressive that people are able to parse information out of that!
  • Excellent demonstration of both screenreader hotkeys (e.g. using H for heading navigation) and voice-controlled "mouse grids"
  • Tips on how to enable keyboard navigation in macOS
